About EventAlert

The addon will notify you in the middle of your screen with an icon, name of the spell that has procced, the time left on the proc and will make a subtle sound. EventAlert is also able to handle more than one proc at a time (this option was not available in previous versions).

I am not fond of addons that have very complicated installation and setups. The mod should work on install without any config, but if you wish to change any options use the following command: /ea options
To see a more detailed list of what options are avaiable to the mod, just check out the screenshot of the options pane.

Quick Backstory: I created this addon as a test for myself as my first "from the ground up" addon. Most of my coding in WoW LUA was taking other addons and just fixing them so they work from minor bugs or whatnot.

Anyhow, I needed a mod that was lightweight and did only what I wanted it to do, and that was warn me when one of my spells or talents procced something I needed. Thus, EventAlert was born. There are likely to be bugs, explosions and not so good things that may come from this mod. I'm sorry in advance! If you find a bug, please let me know so I can fix it.

Also, if anyone finds a spell/talent/etc that they want watched, please let me know and I will add it!

Greetings everyone, my name is Menio and I will be taking over the maintenance of this addon from CurtisTheGreat, the original author!

I'll start with an important note: If you used EventAlert before in your current WoW folder, you will need to delete the EventAlert.lua and EventAlert.lua.bak files located at:
\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\ACCOUNTNAME\SavedVariables for this addon to work.

Above is CurtisTheGreat's original description, with updated class abilities.

Bugfix: Fixed timers for alerts with more than 30 seconds remaining.
Bugfix: Attempting to fix an ongoing issues with AltItem alerts.

    Try the fix here, it should work!

  • #1378

    How do i add hunter focus fire to event alert? I have been trying to but it doesnt chime when focus fire is triggered

  • #1384

    If you want to track the time left on the buff, you can add spell ID 82692. If you want to track when the button lights up on the bar, it will be possible when I finish rewriting the AltItem tracking code xD

  • #1376

  • #1385

    It would seem like the proc associated with Bloodsurge is causing the issue, would you happen to know if it changed in any way?

    I don't seem to see any change in spellID or in the way the buff works, so I assume something else is the issue, but if you have any info on changes to the spell (being removed, no longer having stacks, not displaying on the player's buff bar, etc), it would help me out in figuring out the issue!

    At the moment, I can only reccomend downloading the beta version if you aren't already using it, since there was a problem with a different warrior buff, but it seems like this is a different error caused by Bloodsurge so I can't guarantee getting the beta that fixed the deprecated spellID for "Taste for Blood" would help. :S

    Thanks for the report!

    =D UPDATE: I apologize for not being able to help technically, however the Beta fixed the issue. Tyvm for your quick response and help. I love this addon and wouldnt wanna play without it!

  • #1369

    Hello, I downloaded this addon because I wanted it to show me the buff for Relentless Grip, which is a buff you get when you death grip someone while wearing 4-set pieces of the new PvP set, I found out that the spell ID for Relentless Grip is 131542, but it still won't work.. Any suggestions ?

  • #1377

    Thanks man :D

  • #1370

    Try it with spellID 131547. Sometimes there are duplicates of the spell and the buff spell is a different spellID than the spell that resets the CD on it. It should work! ^_^

    Thanks for the report, I will look into it!

    When riding in a cart having a bit of a scripted fight, I recieved the following error:

    1x [ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED] AddOn "EventAlert" tried to call the protected function "CompactRaidFrame1:Show()".
    !BugGrabber-r191-release\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>
    <in C code>
    FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:279: in function "CompactUnitFrame_UpdateVisible"
    FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:237: in function "CompactUnitFrame_UpdateAll"
    FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:97: in function <FrameXML\CompactUnitFrame.lua:44>

  • #1367

    After seeing this issue posted multiple times, even though EventAlert doesn't actually call the function, I tried to get more info about it.

    It seems like most addons that use their own option menu in the "Interface" section of the escape menu will run into this problem. It is due to having a dropdown menu with more than 8 choices before the "CompactRaidFrame1" is created.

    Sadly, there's nothing I can do about it as it is on Blizzard's end. I could try trimming down some dropdown menus but it would make it harder to tweak some things. :S

    More info here for those interested.
